Australian Towing Industry

Hi all,
Is there anyone here working on Tug Boats in Australia who can provide to me some information regarding contracts and salaries e.t.c.?
I am Chief Engineer working on tanker vessels and willing to move to Australia and work on Towing Industry!

I worked down there on tugs for a bit a few years ago. The sad truth is that if you’re not Australian then the crew (MUA Members) will do anything they can to get rid of you.

The Union moto:
“MUA Here to Stay” (Everybody else can go fu*k themselves)

when you say tug boat do you mean a port tug boat or an AHTS?
